Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...until no strength of the liquor remains in it. To ascertain this, a hydrometer is indispensably necessary to try the liquor; by this mode you can find how many degrees of spirits you have in the water. These spirits can be used for liquor that is over proof, to bring it down to proof. You may put up as many stands as you wish, of the same size, or make them as large as you please. Some rectifiers put up two, one above the other, and let the whiskey through them both; and if you want your spirits very fine, you can let it run through 3 or 4 times; the oftener, the finer your spirits gets. Keep your rectifier always in use, or the coal will become mouldy and unfit for use. The charcoal ought to be prepared from sugar maple wood. Some rectifiers use raw cotton, or straw, instead of flannel, and put between the sand and charcoal, malt, or lime, according to fancy. Recapitulation of Directions in putting up a Rectifying Stand. 1. Take a good, tight barrel, or any other good mak. 2. Bore holes through one of the heads, as described. 3. Take out the head and sink it down within 2 inches of the bottom. 4. Cover with a layer of flannel this perforated Dottom. 5. Put 4 to 6 inches washed sand on the top of the flannel. 6. Put another layer of flannel on the top of the sand. 7. Put 12 or 15 inches of charcoal on the top of the flannel. 8. Put another layer of flannel on the coal. 6. Put 4 or 6 bricks on the flannel, to keep it from rising up to the top. 10. Keep the stand, after you have poured liquor on, well covered. The spirituous liquor which is rectified thus is called pure spirits or sweet liquors, and is flavoured for wines, brandies, spirits, rum, Monongahela whiskey, cordials, etc., and should be clear of all foreign matter.
